Billing for outside x-ray orders
« on: September 01, 2022, 01:31:23 PM »
When patient (not ours) comes in with an order from their provider (MD, PA, APRN) for us to do the x-ray (TC only), can we bill the patients' insurance?
If so, would we use our provider as the provider of service, and use the ordering provider as the referring provider, and would also need their NPI?

What if the ordering is a chiropractor?

What if the ordering is a specialist who is renting office space from us, and we do the TC part only?
Our lawyer was questioning if this last scenario would be against Medicare rules?
